Old Navy Donating $30 million of Clothing to Families in Need

Old Navy Donating $30 million of Clothing to Families in Need

Screenshot of Old Navy’s Mail Alert

We’re not fans of promoting the corporate world, but when they manage to something good then we’re all for getting the word out.

This morning yours truly got an email from Old Navy. Something we’ve been getting nearly every day. Yet, this wasn’t their usual promotional sale alert. This time we’d learn of how they were donating tens of millions worth of clothing to those who need it.

Here’s their alert as it read:

To all the families out there keeping it together for Zoom school, and uniting us with TikTok Challenges…

Thank you for doing your part.

Now it’s our turn, because family has been at the heart of evertything we do since 1994.

We’re donating $30 million of clothing to help families in need, all across America.

I’ve often wondered what the big chain stores and other merchants would do with all the leftover untouched products. Surely they’d have to do something with them. Giving it away to those in need was on our list of solutions and here’s Old Navy doing exactly that!

Thanks Old Navy for doing what’s right.

In addition to the above, they shared a video with the following notice attached:

We tapped artist Noah Scalin to create a unique portrait of an American family, using just our clothes (and his imagination).

In related news, Old Navy’s parent company Gap Inc issued a recent press release indicating the following:

“Gap Inc. has already responded to the call to action by sourcing millions of masks and other personal protective equipment to the healthcare community, and now brands are responding to the demand from consumers who are trying to safely and responsibly restart their daily lives by producing masks for everyday use. Our brands are also giving back, providing 200,000 masks for community organizations and raising money for causes with the greatest need.”
